On this activity page, the "more" on the first item links to http://www.metafilter.com/2839866/We-know-what-happened-because-he-said-yes#2839866; unfortunately, we haven't reached 2.8M posts on MetaFilter. Also, the same comment appears as item 3 of the list, but this time the "more" link works (gets to the right comment in the existing thread). [more inside]
Timezone bug in Ask? [more inside]
I can see the favorites this comment has, and it shows up in my side bar because it was made by a contact, but the comment has been deleted.

A bug in Projects: clicking on the usernames in someone's vote history leads to a 404 every time.
Technical bobbin - when you click on any category in the right-hand bar in AskMe to browse only posts from that category, all the questions in the list have an extra 'at' in them: posted by variousdutchpeople at at 9:08 PM - 58 answers [+] [more inside]
I stupidly clicked on that post that was just deleted that showed the terrible picture and tried to force videos. None of the videos opened-- the browser bounced around. I force shut down my computer by holding down the power button. Now whenever I open firefox 3 on OS X (leopard) that website appears. What do I need to do to fix that/secure my computer? I am posting this to metatalk in case anybody else was also affected.
I like to call out the commenters in this post on credit card billing for being awesome. [more inside]

So, ever since I applied the 3.0 software update to my iPhone, I've run into this problem where occasionally pages (AskMe, MetaTalk, and MeFi proper) load blank... [more inside]
Minor Recent Activity bug within: [more inside]
Just a tiny buglet, but while tags can contain non-alphanumeric characters, the search doesn't recognise them...
I'm not sure if this a MeFi bug or something with my browser or set-up. I have experienced this on different computers and tried reloading Firefox, but I think that it is still going on. What gives? Is it some sort of local proxy or cache issue? I'm at work right now and it's definitely doing it, but this has happened to me at home as well (I am 95% sure). [more inside]
Tiny UK-centric bug/oversight: time in top right shows British Summer Time, but we don't put our clocks forward here until March 29th.
Mefi search doesn't seem to handle very short (specifically, two character) usernames correctly. [more inside]
AskMe category pages aren't listing any questions for me. [more inside]

Amazon referrals need some fixing. [more inside]
Mass deletions? 79140, 79144, 79147 and 79149 are all showing as having been deleted but none of them are closed for comments or given a reason for closure. Is my Greasemonkey broken or is your Blue broken?
The stripy background at the top of the page is broken with IE. But what isn't, amirite? [more inside]

Export Pony at the vet? Found the neato "export comments" feature on the wiki, but it tells me "We're sorry — A Server Error Occurred." Is this just due to the ongoing outage-related fixes, or am I doing it wrong? [more inside]
Bug report: I updated my profile, and it reset my status to Single. [more inside]
When you click on a "
favorited X times" link, you are taken to a page with the title "
All users marked nnnnn as favorite" (example). Should it not say "
All users who marked nnnnnn as a favorite"? (The in-page text heading is "
X users marked this as a favorite:", FWIW)
You might see old MetaFilter posts or comments showing up as new in Google Reader thanks to a new year glitch we fixed today. [more inside]

I just noticed in the bitone post that the björk tag breaks, getting a 403 error (The bjork tag is fine). IIRC theres already some handling for special characters, possibly it should also replace accented characters?
Something weird is going on with the Sarah Palin thread and "Recent Activity" [more inside]
If you reply to your own comment in Ask MeFi, and no one else has replied yet, it no longer shows up on the Unanswered Questions page. [more inside]
I used to see the links to "* Recent Posts/* My Favorites/* Popular Favorites/* My Comments/* Recent Comments" as tabs on the front page (like this example from MeTa). Now they look like this. [more inside]
Ctrl-shift-t collision in Firefox. [more inside]
Anyone else unable to add a custom MeFi icon webclip to their iPhone home screen? I just get a snapshot of the page, instead of the nice blue MF logo (which was working for me earlier this year.) Other sites with this functionality are working fine. Tech Specs: first gen iPhone, OS 2.0, unlocked and jailbroken.
Because for some reason I can't sign into metafilter's main page, I thought I'd give a brief update on the situation in this thread here. [more inside]
When a title (or possible any word) in a contact's post is long enough, it overflows the bounds of the sidebar and causes the front page to have right-scroll. Pic here.
Displaying post 1 to 1 of 2 from projects. How do I see my other favorite? [more inside]
MeFi Music: MusicTalk threads showing up on main page as deleted threads, tossing out the flash player for the preceding song. Latest example: July 11, the track Settle Down's player is gone and replaced by "Deleted thread:2308", which was actually posted on MeFiMuTa later. [more inside]

There appears to be a bug on the recent Flickr photos page. I've seen this bug regularly, though not every day. Today's example is a repeated picture by bibliowench on Jun 9th, 2008 and bevedog on Jun 9th, 2008. Both are displayed as "Omeka stickers", both link to the same external Flickr page. I am running firefox on macos. (I don't read MetaTalk much, so I apologize if this is a known bug. I did do a quick search for a posting about the same topic.)
Has code been added to "fix" "invalid" HTML? [more inside]
I'm trying to post in this thread... I can preview, but when I try to post I just get "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again."... and I'm pretty sure my comment is not blank...
"Protection from the Atomic Bomb" doesn't display a link anywhere in the text of the post (for me). The rest of the page is fine. What happened? [more inside]
